Initialization script extension

Initialization script extension

I am reading the help on creating script extensions.... but I don't "get it". I have a handful of extensions that I am considering. But I want to get my hands dirty writing one before I decide the merit. Does anyone have reference to a simple tutorial for pretty much any extension? It is likely easier than I am getting right now, because I clearly remember doing in in the past.

There is a lot of good information in the documentation:

I had given a quick tutorial at the last Connect conference up in Boston....and there was a brief recap of it done after the fact.  @TanyaYatskovska ... do you have any available links to those videos?

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.
I love good food, good books, good friends, and good fun.

Robert, if the session was recorded, it should be here:


Carson, thanks for the link to the tutorial. It's great indeed. @vthomeschoolmom, I suggest that you go through it. Also, you can find some examples in the TestComplete installation folder. In my case, here:
